Our menopause health check is designed for women who are transitioning through the menopause and those who are at the post-menopause stage.
It includes a home blood test that allows you to keep a check on your hormone levels together with the impact the menopause may be having on your overall wellbeing. This includes body stress due to interrupted sleep patterns, weight gain, thyroid function, decreased iron and bone density
The blood test includes an FSH test, LH and Oestradiol (Oestrogen) hormone check. In addition, it assesses your levels of vitamin D, calcium and magnesium, which are key markers for bone health. When oestradiol levels drop during the menopause, it can cause bones to weaken and lose strength. In turn, this can lead to osteoporosis. It’s therefore vital for women who are experiencing or who have gone through the menopause to look after bone strength through exercise and by getting sufficient calcium and vitamin D.
Results will be reviewed by one of our registered healthcare professionals and results made available on your personal dashboard where you can track changes over time and gain valuable information on each marker.
Note: a post-menopause reference range will be applied to results.
The menopause has a huge impact on women's mental and physical health. This menopause health test is a simple prick test which can be taken at home. It measures 16 key markers which can be impacted by the menopause including key female hormone markers, biomarkers for bone health as well as those that can influence sleep patterns.
Once you receive your test kit through the post, simply collect your sample and post it directly to our lab. Results are available in a matter of days and will be displayed on our easy-to-understand health dashboard. Here you can track changes in your markers or download your results to discuss with your GP or other medical professional.
PLEASE NOTE NO BIOCHEMICAL TEST CAN COMPLETELY EXCLUDE THE POSSIBILITY OF FURTHER OVULATION.

As a working mum, I often find myself training ‘tired’ as the demands of day-to-day life take their toll. Forth has enabled me to gain a valuable insight into what is happening ‘under the surface’, so I can adapt my training and lifestyle.
As a former Olympic cyclist I always wanted to look after my health. This has never changed to this day but become a lot easier via Forth, it’s the only way to really understand your own body.
Forth really helped me understand issues that I was having, which in the end turned out to be problems with iron absorption. Without their test I would never have known this. I now have the knowledge I need to improve.
I ran my first marathon in 2014 which left me feeling exhausted and constantly unwell. What I didn’t know then was that my iron and vitamin D levels were incredibly low. By using Forth to test key biomarkers has put me in control of the areas I need to improve.
I'd put off getting regular blood tests before because of the long-winded process of a GP visit. Forth has changed all that. The process is very quick and very easy, with thorough, well-explained results delivered to your inbox within days.
I was keen to use Forth’s service to help monitor my haematological markers in particular since I've had problems in the past and by the time they are picked up by the GP I'm normally feeling unwell. The test was quick and easy to do and results were back very quickly. The results are also incredibly accurate, being almost identical to those from tests done by my GP the same day.
I enlisted the help of Forth to help me get to the bottom of my current health concerns. The test was really easy to and my results were available within day. Using Forth has helped me take the action needed to get my hormones back on track.
I suffer from a hereditary condition which causes my body to store too much iron. My biggest issue before using Forth was getting an appointment with my GP. Now using Forth I can track my iron quickly and easily and take action before levels start to affect my health
Taking the test is simple just make sure you follow all the instructions so you follow the correct procedures. The customer service is second to none and the results are easy to understand and follow.
